Chevrolet Corvette For Sale

Used Corvette For Sale

Ever since it's birth in 1953, the Vette has been a fan favorite around sports car aficionados. The sports car icon is also known for being as American as apple pie. With over 50 year’s experience, Chevy has been making it's top sports car better and better with each generation. It has recently hit prime performance numbers and is now capable of comparisons with offerings from the exotic manufacturers. Chevy has done this at a relatively low price, ensuring it will always be the performance bargain of the supercars. A Corvette for sale is always a popular choice for people that seek a relatively cheap sports car. It walks the line between the more expensive exotic cars and the less expensive sports cars. This puts the car in the weird zone of being sought after despite it being fairly common.

The first generation debuted in 1953 and is also referred to as a classic Corvette. This car was commonly referred to as the “solid-axle” since the independent rear suspension did not become available until 1962. Since only 300 hand-built old were produced, the 1953 model is highly sought after. The second generation began life in 1963. In 1963, Chevy introduced the Stingray, with its coupe body style and split rear window. That car had one of the shortest life spans of all the Vettes, at only five years.

The third generation was designed after a Mako shark and was well known for its voluptuous body styling. That body style went through some minor changes as it moved through its 14-year life. Some notable changes were the loss of the metal bumpers for urethane ones. In 1975, the Convertible stopped production and Chevy introduced the fastback glass rear window.

The C4 or fourth-generation began life in March 1983 after a one-year hiatus. This generation saw a plethora of special- and collector editions. This included the 2nd Inday Pace car, the LT1 with the 300-horsepower V-8, the 1996 Grand Sport with the 330-horsepower V-8, the Collector Edition, which was a Grand Sport in a different color, and the ZR-1 with the 375-horsepower V-8.

The C5 or fifth-generation took a giant step forward in design and engineering. The car made leaps and bounds in solidity and durability when compared to past generations. The C5 is by far the best bang for the buck when shopping for a used Corvette, but, it was lacking was in the interior. The car earned its rank as one of the fastest production cars on the planet with the Z06 iteration. The Z06 sported a 405-horsepower V-8 and was praised by critics for its power and handling prowess. The sixth-generation has taken the big step offered by the C5 and expounded on it. It's even more solid with an even better interior. The car has two special editions: a 505-horsepower Z06, as well as the most expensive and most powerful ever offered, the ZR1. The price a tad over $100,000 and makes an incredible 638 horsepower.

Corvette Z51 For Sale

The similarities between the new-generation C7 and the ‘70’s C3 are apparent. Both offer swoopy styling that bridges a gap between hard-edged American muscle cars and the smooth lines of the Italian exotics. Both carry the Stingray (one word) moniker, and both offer an LT-1 engine (the new car deletes the hyphen). But that’s where the similarities end and the new 2014 Corvette Stingray pulls ahead—far ahead.

Boasting over 370 horsepower may have gotten you far in 1970 or even 2004, but the lastest ‘Vette takes things further, offering up 460 horsepower and 465 foot-pounds of torque with the optional performance exhaust system. It will, also, take you farther, returning 29 miles to the gallon through the Active Fuel Management system, which can shut off half the cylinders during light engine loads. It all comes thanks to the new LT1. It replaces the LS3 while doling out the highest standard power ratings ever for the Corvette through a variety of small changes that have upped the ante while maintaining the capacity. Direct fuel injection, continuously variable valve timing, high compression, oil-spray piston cooling, and dry-sump lubrication are just some of the keywords GM engineers are throwing around. Transmission options include a paddle-shifted, six-speed automatic and, for the first time, a seven-speed manual, which is offered with rev-matching technology.

More power is great, but less to move is even better. An all-new more-rigid aluminum frame is 57 percent stiffer and 99 pounds lighter than the outgoing steel frame. But it doesn’t end there. Other lightweight materials are utilized, including carbon fiber for the hood and the coupé’s removable roof panel and composites for the fenders, doors, rear hatch and rear quarter panels. The rear toe links are now constructed of aluminum, and the suspension’s lower control arms have been hollowed out, saving nine and two pounds, respectively.

But performance is just one area in which the Corvette has already succeeded. Those that have long been skeptical about a Corvette will be glad to hear how much attention was spent on the interior. Chevrolet promises nothing but soft-touch materials, including smooth micro-suede and sumptuous Napa leather, surrounded by genuine carbon-fiber and aluminum trim. This is one area naysayers will need to experience. No word when, or if, we can expect Z06 and ZR1 editions to soon follow, but until then, we have the return of the Z51. The Z51 Performance Package, in addition to stiffening the suspension, includes an electronic limited-slip differential as well as an aerodynamic package that further improves high-speed stability and aids cooling. As a result, the Corvette Stingray with the Z51 Performance Package is capable of 1.03g in cornering acceleration. The 2014 Corvette Stingray coupé is now available and the convertible, with an all-new fully electronic top, will be available at the end of 2013.
